Anyone familiar with TV’s Storage Wars knows that it’s possible to find hidden treasure in a storage unit. This reality show dealt with repossessed units the contents of which bidders did not know. Basically this was a puffed up game show with surprises and disappointments akin to the old Let’s Make a Deal where a contestant chose what was behind a door without knowing the contents.
As with all shows of this type there was a lot of hype and manufactured suspense, but behind that there was a grain of reality: some people have in fact found “buried” treasure in someone else’s storage unit. These units have become the new attics where people store and forget about items of value.
What are the odds you have something valuable hiding in your storage unit? If the unit is yours and you’ve filled it up over the years (and let’s be honest, most people keep their storage units for YEARS) then you’d know if there’s something worth a lot of money. If however, you’re not the one who loaded up the unit then you may be in for a surprise. If a family member passes and you find yourself in charge of the estate it’s an opportunity to divest yourself of that unit and its contents. If the unit is large enough, you may be faced with the onerous task of needing to haul away all that “stuff.”
It’s not something anyone looks forward to, but you don’t have to do it yourself. One call to your storage unit clean out professionals at Bumblebee Junk and all that stuff is as good as gone.
